These Mitts have been around a couple of hundred years in North Newfoundland and Labrador. Quite possibly the warmest and coziest mittens you can make! This workshop is for knitters who are comfortable with cast on, knit, purl and knitting in the round. The workshop will show how to make thrums and insert them into your work.
Materials needed: 100g Worsted yarn, 50g Corriedale, 3.75mm & 4.5mm Needles (or as required for gauge); Can be purchased at Baaad Anna’s Yarn Store.
Homework: We will be using Tin Can Knits’ world’s simplest mittens pattern (free on Ravelry). Please work the pattern from cast on and stop at the thumb gusset set up round, before the start of class. Note: Thrums take up a lot of space in your mitten! You will probably want to make the mitten one size larger than you usually wear and adjust the cuff length accordingly. The sample in the store is an adult medium with a 3 inch cuff – please feel free to come and try it on to see if it fits!
